ASIC bans broker over fake approval letter

ASIC bans broker over fake approval letter

Adam Sanders  Bank Victims 18 July 2013

Eric Ying Ching Chu has been permanently banned from engaging in credit activities after an ASIC investigation found that he had falsified a letter stating finance approval had been provided for a client.

The Perth based mortgage broker was formerly employed by Mortgage Specialists Pty Ltd as a trustee for the Janet Smith Family Trust trading as Specialist Mortgage.

ASIC's investigation found that after falsifying the letter, Chu then forwarded that letter to a settlement agent so that CBA would issue a loan in the amount of $256,000.

ASIC banned Chu on the basis that he was not a fit and proper person to engage in credit activities.

‘ASIC takes the role of gatekeepers very seriously. People who do not take their obligations seriously will be removed from the industry,’ said Deputy Chairman Peter Kell.

Chu has the right to appeal to the Administrative Appeals Tribunal for a review of ASIC’s decision.
